“Comic Relief ’88” (April 23, 1988)

Comic Relief U.S.A.Network: HBO

This is another special about which I’m having trouble finding any real information. The IMDB states that Michael J. Fox appeared on the 1986 broadcast and that there was no 1988 special at all. However, I did see this when it aired and I saw it in 1988. I was young so perhaps I thought it was new but it was a repeated airing, but I honestly don’t believe so.

In MJF’s sketch his character had a talk with another character played by Whoopi Goldberg, who happened to be homeless. The only other details I can remember about the sketch is the MJF was wearing an earring. I know, odd thing to notice, but I was a teenage girl.
